What I admire most about our intellectual property clients is their incredible enthusiasm and creativity. I'm particularly entertained by all of the interesting tradenames, slogans, and logos that our trademark clients bring to us for vetting and protection. It is one of the things that makes practicing intellectual property law so much fun.
